Manufacturer Part Number: HI5-R0

HD-SDI/SDI to HDMI Video and Audio Converter
The Hi5 converts SDI or HD-SDI to HDMI for driving HDMI monitors. Embedded SD/HD-SDI audio is supported in the HDMI output allowing a convenient single cable audio/video connection. The Hi5 provides 2-Channel RCA style audio outputs for separate audio monitoring if needed. The Hi5 also provides a looping SD/HD-SDI output useful for connecting additional equipment, or for 'daisy chaining' multiple monitors to the same SD-HD-SDI source.
